Thanks ladies!! I'd be glad to share! Although I have to warn you that I'm horrible at giving directions. I tried to take pics of the process but my DD was impatient.

Materials:
Hot glue gun & glue sticks
Styrofoam wreath form (we used a beveled form)
Plastic eggs ( we used just over 4 dozen regular size and about a dozen small)
Easter grass
Bow
Stuffed animal (optional)

It was super simple but if I confuse anyone just let me know. First we glued one row of the larger eggs on the wreath (like in the picture, unfortunately the only picture I was able to take). Then we glued 2 more rows of the larger eggs. One on either side of the first row. We then used a pencil to glue small amounts of Easter grass in the spots that you could see the wreath. Then we glued the smaller eggs randomly (basically where we thought they'd look best). Lastly the bow, again placement is personal preference (if you choose to use a bow at all), just glue bow in place. The bunny wasn't originally in the plan but my dd had one that she didn't play with anymore, which was also glued into place. HTH! If you ladies have questions, feel free to let me know.

Have fun and I wanna see pics ladies!!

* Just a few tips, the eggs are cheap @ Hobby Lobby. I believe they're .77 a dozen for the larger ones and .67 for 2 dozen for the small ones. Also we used a pre-made bow. The bow was actually cheaper than a roll of ribbon.*

You both did an awesome job — the wreath is really cute!  I may have to try this with my kiddos!  I like the bunny...adds a cute and nice touch.
